China - Economy - A Migrant Story

March 15, 2006, 10:00 AM. In two hours, the young couple will leave Anhui Province for Beijing. A short wash before leaving. Ding Zhifa and Cai Xingju wed in Wei Ding, a village of 400 inhabitants located 150 kilometers from Hefei, capital of the Anhui province. The couple met only once in 2005, by way of a meiren, or a go-between. Ding Zhifa, 25, was advised of the imminence of the wedding by phone, while he was working on a construction site in Beijing. His father met with Cai Xingju, a 24-year-old woman from the neighboring village, for him. Cai Xingju has never left her family, nor her hometown. Everything is changing for her.
